Cake’s mission is to improve the financial well-being of all users. We do this primarily by helping people better understand, control and improve their finances. And as the icing on the cake you can also earn some extra cash thanks to the Cake Rewards. That’s how we make your bank account profitable again!
Are you a convinced Cake user? Then you now have an extra reason to convince your sweetheart, brother, sister, friend, colleague, neighbor, mother, grandfather, parcel deliverer or mailman! For every new Cake user you introduce you will receive a Reward of €1. Cash paid to your bank account!
Are you handing out pennies again?
Yes, that’s right!
The more users Cake has, the more interest there is from companies, the more Rewards we can offer, the more revenue for you, and for us. That’s how our business model works.
Of course we advertise to attract users but we think our satisfied users are our best ambassadors. And if, thanks to their enthusiasm, they bring in new users, we think they should earn something.
Have you in the past already convinced your whole korfball club of Cake? Then that’s bad luck! No, joke, of course we don’t leave our early ambassadors out in the cold. You can still receive those Rewards! But more about that later on.
Alright, show me the money!
How does this work exactly? Well that’s a … piece of cake (pun intended).
We don’t use complicated gift certificate scratch codes with expiration dates which you have to hand out to your friends who then lose them. We simply use your phone number as a unique code to recognize you. We thought that would be a little easier. Your friends usually know your phone number. And there is only one person with that phone number.
Specifically, it works as follows:
- As a Cake user, you will see a “Share Cake and earn money” box in the settings screen of your app. Tap it.
- Then enter your own phone number. You only have to do this once.
- Next you can also enter the phone number of the person who ever convinced you to use Cake. Even if it was 6 months ago. Shout-out to the friends of the korfball club!
- To make it even easier we have also provided you can send your friends who don’t use Cake yet a message with a download link for the app. But of course you can also just talk them into it!
- Let’s say, you convince your colleague Pascal to use Cake.
- Pascal downloads the app and after linking a first bank account, Pascal immediately receives the “Share Cake and earn money” invitation.
- Pascal will then first input its own phone number.
- Then Pascal will enter your phone number. So we know that Pascal installed Cake thanks to you.
- And then, at our expense, you will see a €1 Cake Reward appear in your app.
What if someone enters your phone number to thank you and you haven’t entered your phone number in your Cake app yet? That’s not a problem! Your Rewards will remain reserved for you and as soon as you make yourself known via your phone number, your €1 Rewards will flow into your bank account!
If after Pascal also your uncle Willy, aunt Gerda, and your friends Sacha, Brahim and Caroline install the app, you get another €5. Then convince your whole card or bingo club … and katsjing! No no no, there’s no limit!
And if Pascal is convinced of Cake in the meantime, Pascal can also earn euros by bringing in new users.
Our favorite (digital) opening line this year-end will be “Hey, do you Cake already?”.
Do you need some extra reasoning to convince your friends? Here you can find 10 good reasons to convince them to become a Cake user. But we guess your positive experience with the app will be the most important reason!
